If you have been to the Carib Inn, there is nothing to tell you. If you haven’t, you are missing one of the iconic dive operations that the Caribbean has to offer. Love that senior friendly ladder on the blue boat.

This is funny and wonderful - thank you so much for the review . . . and the new ladder is nice isn't it!!! We are installing a similar ladder on the white boat so it might be ready for you next visit.

While on Hilda Hooker I noticed my second stage attachment to my swivel was a few threads out. Made a regrettable decision to tighten it under pressure. Chewed up the o-ring. Was told to “ go to Bruce” . And sure enough, he had me fixed up in less than 5 minutes for a dollar. Thanks Bruce, your the best. Next time we come down we’re staying at the Inn.

Great value, gear, and fantastic people! Helped with all kinds of advise regarding sites, history, and helped with gear repairs, often refusing to accept any payment. y personal favorite aspect though has got to be the verbal abuse Bruce provided free of charge to anyone who asks for it :-))
